This is how we like to kick off the year, with a series of Out of Place objects constructed by a very clever Robert Rickhoff. Playground slides that lead you to oncoming traffic, volleyball courts on the autobahn, skate ramp crosswalks, all situations that are going to lead you to some sort of disaster. Rickhoff is based in Germany, and works as an allaround creative.

A bit of interaction for us today on Juxtapoz.com. Bubblebyte.org is pleased to present Mirage Machines, a solo exhibition of works by Athens-based artist Angelo Plessas. Since the late 90s, Angelo Plessas’ work has been strongly reflecting and mastering the language of the Internet through the creation of websites as artworks. So what that means for you, me, us is that we get to play and interact with Plessas' creations from the past few years.

Well, these are a ton of fun. Josh, we will just call him Josh, of the band Old Monk Song creates these fantastic animated gifs of historical and fun moments in music history, including wonderful live performances, pivotal cultural icons, indie giants, and just plain cool music videos. Our favorite could be the Tupac gif... in prison, getting married, #1 hit? Legend.

Double-exposures had a good year in 2012, as the effect was used in abundance on a ton of great projects we have covered throughout the year. As we close it out, we just came across the double exposure works of Brazilian photographer Heitor Magno, who applies many of his double exposed imagery like a tattoo artist on flesh; the effect is seamless, stunning at times.

I am currently an Art student at the Pontifical Xavierian University in Bogota, Colombia and from that aside I'm a small chick, very small, who lives the way small people do and that eats and create small things, that it also has a purpose, a very healthy purpose, fight and bitter the existence of those who are different, the tall ones, and with that I mean, conquer the world to then have the power over the pituitary gland of the human race...

We have written about artist Kazuki Takamatsu on the site before, but seeing the work in person at the Scope Fair in Miami, it was some of our favorite pieces we have seen in quite some time. He creates stunning images of what might best be described as semi-erotic, childish Lolita girls in a dreamlike 3-dimensional fantasy haze.

Normally, an Elijah Wood starring video would not make it on our radar, but when it comes in the starring role of an awesomely bizarro music video for Flying Lotus "Tiny Tortures" (off of the sublime FlyLo 2012 album Until The Quiet Comes), we are all ears and eyes. Is it a dream? Where did that hand go? Only director David Lewandowski knows. Watch...

Lindsay, your sophomore-year crush, may not have realized how much attention and pupose went into putting "Girlfriend" and "Just Like Heaven" back to back on that tape you tossed to her and couched as "just some cool songs" as she dropped you off after group study at the library. But that was years ago, and that tape and the heartbreak are long gone. Enter Mixtape.

We knew it was coming, but now it looks to be a reality. Currently, the world’s first 3D printing photo booth is open for a limited time at an exhibition space in Harajuku, Tokyo, EYE OF GYRE. What you can do? Get a reservation, go get your portrait taken, and then, instead of a regular photo, you get a mini figure of yourself.

The art duo of Takayuki Nakazawa and Hiroshi Manaka has come to solidify a departure away from digitally manipulated photography. Using props and other elements, they’ve developed a vivid, moving series of still images showcasing life in gravity defying explosions.
